Bihar Poll latest

A high 57% voter turnout in the first phase of the Bihar elections has given BJP reason enough to cheer. In the first phase out of one crore thirty five lakh voters, thirty five lakh are under the age of thirty and four and a half lakh are first time voters. This time in every seat there are 85,000 under-30 voters which is more than the average winning margin of 15,000 votes in the last assembly elections in 2010. Therefore the sizeable number of young voters this time could well be the deciding factor in an election where the stakes are high.
